Newsgroup Summaries

The following is list of additional CSS tags done by Dean Woodside and myself for newsgroup consideration in lieu of inactivity on the newsgroups:


Throughout the course , I have been exposed to various tools (like IRC, bugzilla, Wiki's etc.) that I had never used prior to taking the course. So in that sense it has really helped me understand the culture of large projects specifically open source ones a lot better. The course helped to dispell several myths and misunderstandings about open source and allowed me to gain more insight into this realm of software development. Furthermore, I can better (and more fully) relate to and appreciate the open source philosophy about collaboration, sharing of knowledge and community.
